Highly Valuable Black Walnut Tree
« on: October 12, 2016, 06:32:42 PM »
Today I got one of those inquiries to see if I was interested in buying a highly valuable black walnut tree. 

Here it is.....




This is what came to mind right away.    :D

Looks like a great deal.After you chip the brush and haul away all the bigger limbs too. And fix the lawn after you drove across it.  ::)
I betcha they forgot to tell you about the clothesline pulley that run from that tree 20 years ago too.

My first thought I will with hold,  my second thought was how many more in that nice area?  Third thought, do we really make fun of folks? Just asking, so many are just misinformed, plane and simple, even worse, maybe going through a rough time, the swindlers show cards soon enough,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

i was sorta serious on the price :) that tree would make lowest grade log worth about $1 bdft here the butt has a knot,burl, something grew in it or something about 1/2 up the trunk on left side but it is walnut so it has fair value but not highly valuable by any means :) :) with nothing to compare to for size comparison i guessed it at roughly 300 bdft ;)

Hah!  That cartoon never ceases to be hilarious! :D :D :D  I'd quote a charge of $1500 to remove the tree.  More if they want the stump ground.

It partly depends how rare walnut is in your area. I would be glad to give $1/bf for the logs of that tree, if someone dropped them off at my mill. If it is, as it looks like in the picture, over 18" dbh.

Love that cartoon.  The problem is that there are so many people that are misinformed with the urban legend that it is frustrating to deal with so often and gets in a way of making a reasonable deal again and again.
    I had someone contact me about a "highly valuable" yard tree next to a garage and some wires.  He wasn't happy when I informed him of the actual value and what it would take to get it down.  I think he thought I was a crook trying to rip him off.  I passed.  That was a couple years ago.  Just the other day I saw them taking that house down to extend the shopping center.  They had to pay a tree service to take the walnut down and they cut it into short chunks and sent it to the grinder.

I'll saw a yard walnut, but I'm not paying over $1/bf doyle. and I'm not taking it down AND paying for it.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

does anyone know what the actual price is for good walnut  ??? i mean FAS grade  its so rare around here that i have no idea but i know of 3 trees (not for sale though) that are 30+ inches and the butts are clear for 12-14 ft  :o  trees like these are rare here  :)  the one thing that worries me is that the trees were panted in 1949 by my granddad (the year they move to the farm) and they just seem to big for the age but i dont know how fast the should grow  :P what do you guys think ???

The size is about right for fertile soil-- that would be 1/4 inch growth rings at 1/2 inch diameter growth per year, which I'd say is very normal for Tennessee.

Price for FAS black walnut, tractor trailer load quantity F.O.B sawmill is $4100 per thousand or $4.10 per board foot per the Hardwood Market Report.  That is for rough sawn, kiln dried stock.  It is highly valuable.

Yes, but what for the logs themselves? $2/bf?
